Many fans have asked which current contestant on Simon Cowell’s X Factor has the highest number of Twitter follower’s. It was a huge surprise when I checked the stats on December 3, 2011.
While Josh Krajcik ranks highest in the polls and is the favorite to win, he is actually at the bottom of the list when it comes to Twitter. Melanie Amaro, is second in the polls and holds the same spot when it comes to her number of Tweeps. However, it may shock you to hear, that although Rachel Crow is currently near the bottom when it comes to the poll on who will win, she leads the pack when it comes to Twitter follower’s.
Some may argue that this is due to Crow’s age demographics–because it fits for those staying current with social media. And with Josh being over thirty, some in his generation are clearly behind when it comes to Twitter. Is this the reason? Not 100% sure, but if you notice the staggering amount of follower’s for the other young contestants, age may just may be the culprit.
It will be interesting to see if any of this matters when it comes to the winner in the end…we know Drew went home this week and she had over 113,000 follower’s (and growing). But amazingly enough Astro also was sent back to Brooklyn and lead the pack with over 145,000 follower’s (and growing)!
Check out the stats below and weigh in on who you think will win.
